From their beginnings of creating home recordings as children and self released material on Music70 onto releases through Skam to their hugely successful albums on Warp the Sandison brothers have gained cult status and a global following. Their inclusion of samples of religious cults, nods towards nature, geometry and mathematics in their music and track titles have added fuel to the hearsay and speculation amongst theorists and fans. For the second Inspired By album various recording artists have created music drawn from Boards Of Canadaâs world of nostalgic electronics and evolving sound.

The only really worthwhile track's Dep - Found in Translation - and that is a really good track, and worth downloading.
However the rest of it is not. Sub-par faux-boc work.
If you really like BoC, which you probably do if you're reading this, check out Fieldtriqp - he has some free stuff on archive.org, as well as a couple of great paid albums. He's more like BoC without being a pastiche of them like these tracks tend to be.
All respect to the people who made this compilation, but it's not worth it.

Inspired By Boards Of Canada
If you enjoy Boards of Canada then you will like this album called Inspired By Boards Of Canada. I personally am not a overly huge fanatical fan of the majority of what Boards Of Canada does because their work tends to be so chill and themeatically ambitious that I can't enjoy it the same way I can enjoy some good Pop or Rock songs. That said though I do feel that this is a very high quality effort. In my mind I'd almost conside this an unofficial Boards of Canada Album even though I think it is okay to assume that the originators of that name had nothing directly to do with producing this.
